TCP Performance Improvement in Wireless Networks With Cooperative Communications and Network Coding

Cooperative communications and network coding are considered as effective technologies to provide robust and efficient communications. Most existing studies focus on lower layer performance, such as bandwidth efficiency, and little attention has been paid to the performance in the upper layers, such as Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) throughput. In this paper, the authors investigate TCP throughput in wireless networks with cooperative communications and network coding, and take a cross-layer design approach to improve TCP throughput.
